Ballina Quay Regatta coming back with a splash

The tradition of the Ballina Quay Regatta is finally being revived after a break of 20 years.

And the organisers are bringing the event back with a big splash.

The Moy Estuary Boat Club, supported by the RNLI and Ballyglass Lifeboat service, has scheduled a jam-packed weekend from June 12 to 14.

The regatta programme includes currach racing, music, boat treasure hunting, water skiing, fishing competitions, air displays, and even flyboarding - a relatively new activity that employs a type of jetpack to hover in the air over the water.

Visitors and locals are expected to pack out the Quay, which is a Wild Atlantic Way destination point, for the three-day event.

The Band of the Western Command will headline the festival on Sunday.

The weekend will also feature a craft fair and an air stunt display.
